Post or entry? Or to post an entry, or post an article, report, assignment or thought?
The sales of appropriateness. Social, journalism or report? Personal, professional or Professional?
Blogging for Dummies (2006) Brad Hill p205 Posts or articles?
‘Calling an entry an article is a curious usage reminiscent of Usenet newsgroups (the native bulletin board system of the Internet), in which posts are historically called articles and where these posts were mostly academic articles'.
Ought we to be posting ‘articles.’ Might this raise the tone?
Do we ‘post’ anything at all any more if we write directly into or onto the platform where the ‘post’ will appear? As well as posting we do of course also link, if the ‘article’ is in a different blog or upload if it is coming off or desktop. Surely all we do now is ‘write stuff.’
I like the way some savvy folk who work online refer to anything created for the web as ‘stuff,’ not e-articles, e-video, e-graphics, e-quizzes or e-games, but a catch all for online ‘assets,’ objects or whatever terminology makes sense to you.
